UCL Taekwondo is the biggest university Taekwondo club in the UK and the most successful university Taekwondo club in the UK. Taekwondo is a fantastic opportunity to keep fit, learn self-defence, and most importantly, meet some enthusiastic and friendly people! We welcome all abilities from all backgrounds, from complete beginners to black belts, and cater the training sessions to suit everyone.

Description (Edit summary)

At UCL Taekwondo, you will be taught by several experienced black belt coaches and our very experienced head instructor.  We focus on all major aspects of Taekwondo: Kyorugi (sparring/the sport side of Taekwondo), Poomsae (patterns/the art side of Taekwondo) and self-defence. Here you have the opportunity to enter up to 5 competitions and 4 gradings per year, which means that every member makes great progress and development throughout their time with us! We have had fantastic competition success as we are current holders of the Best Performing Team Award at the Imperial Open. We also dominated the London University Sports League (LUSL) and are the current Student National Champion.  We have been holders of the UCL-KCL Taekwondo Varsity Series Competition for 4 years running. After a very successful run dominating all the student competitions in 2016-2017, we were awarded Club of the Year by the British Student Taekwondo Federation (BSTF) in 2017.
